What’s This TV Show About?
A Netflix horror-crime drama, The Frankenstein Chronicles stars Sean Bean, Richie Campbell, Vanessa Kirby, Eloise Smyth, Elliot Cowan, Tom Ward, Ryan Sampson, Laurence Fox, Paul Kennedy, Martin McCann, Charlie Creed-Miles, Stuart Graham, Jessie Ross, Ed Stoppard, and Lucy Cray-Miller. The story centers on Inspector John Marlott. After stumbling upon an oddly sutured corpse, Marlott is recruited to investigate whether it was planted there as a political act, or if something more sinister is afoot. Marlott is eager to track and find the person who committed this unspeakable crime. As the investigation unfolds though, he soon realizes that he is dealing with something more heinous than he’d dared to imagine.
Because we won’t know viewership rates, unless they decide to release them, this is where I’d usually say it’s hard to predict whether Netflix will cancel or renew The Frankenstein Chronicles for season three. And that it is, but the situation is even more complicated than usual.
The first two seasons of this British drama premiered on ITV Encore — a British network which will become an on-demand platform, in Spring 2018. In October of 2015, A&E originally picked up the US rights to the first season, but never ran it. Finally, in December of 2017, Netflix picked up the global rights, but Variety reports distributor Endemol Shine International has already licensed it in some markets. Reportedly, Netflix will eventually get those markets too, once those deals have expired.
The bottom line: Netflix could pick up additional seasons, should it perform well for them. We’ll just have to wait and see. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the trades, update this page with breaking developments, and seek a less complicated supper.
